Facing an imminent deporation order, Last Thurs (nov 27) the court ruled that for now he can stay in Canada. The stay is effective until the courts hear his application to overturn the deportation order. The government is trying to deport him to Syria. Amnesty International has concluded Almrei's life is at risk if deported from Canada. He remains in Metro West Detention Centre in Toronto, in solitary confinement.
